On November 6, the children in Reception will be taking part in a project which is part of their character education lesson. The lesson objective is to teach the children about caring for others. The children will be learning about how some children around the world are not so fortunate at Christmas and how we can help with a small act of kindness. Therefore, each reception class will be making two Christmas shoe boxes per class to send as part of the Christmas shoe box appeal. Each class will be doing one box for a boy and one for a girl (age range is 5-9 years old). We would really appreciate any donations that could be put in these shoe boxes and ask that each child bring a 50p donation (in an envelope to the class teacher) to help cover the charities cost of shipping and project costs.

Please bring donations to school on Friday 3 November- thank you.
